I offer a retrieval service. You need to pay %5 of the winnings to me directly to retrieve it.
*We do not guarantee successful retrieval, And if not no refunds.

Unlike Tim, I'm happy to collect for free. Just post your credit card details online here so I can deposit the funds once I collect them.

Saw this one over on Trademe the other day:

Good day Beneficiary, 
We have been able to apprehend the officials behind the delay in releasing your Contract/ Inheritance payment. We have been working with special and trained agents around the globe in order to investigate and find out why your payment of $1.5M USD has been placed on hold for several years now. 
Some group of corrupt official working with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) in West Africa and major banks in the United Kingdom conspired to rip you off your due payment of $1.5M USD with the Central Bank. We have been able to track down 15 officials that conspired in ripping and serphoning your over due payment to their own personal accounts.. 
The fund will be processed and released to you via Telegraphic wire transfer or via a certified ATM CARD. We urge you to make a choice of payment which you find most convenient and also re- confirm your complete names, address, direct telephone numbers, occupation and a valid ID in order to update your file with the legal processing/payment office. 
Finally, we urge you to stop all communication with whom ever you are dealing with at this point for security reasons. 
Warm regards, 
Special FBI Agent 
Agent Jackson.
